Your local chemist will have a good selection my wife used Avomine my granddaughter has a patch behind her ear which is prescription only, some use wrist bands,you pays your money and takes your choice.Avoid the ships medical centre as the injection is very expensive ?

Yes Both the patch and the pills worked never tried the wrist bands the pills worked well and quite quickly we had had a prolonged period of rough seas,the Granddaughter cannot travel more than 10 miles by road and the patches work very well and she has no problems but they can have some funny side effects?

Hi Some passengers find taking the spice Ginger relieves seasickness. Some cruise lines provide crystallized ginger in their restaurants; alternatively, you could take some Ginger powder, capsules, tea or even biscuits. If you search for Ginger and Sickness, you will find many suggestions. Hope this helps .

Best cure for seasickness? A full stomach. You feel sick when you are hungry & low in blood sugar. A full stomach, full of carbs keeps the sickness feeling away. We also recommend the wristbands but they get uncomfortable after a while. Tablets are a poor choice as they make you drowsy and if you want to drink .... not a good mix.

Still my favourite cruise to date.I am booke...

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas. Unfortunately I had to spend nine days there and have emergency operation on New Years day! As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
